The contemporary fashion scene is driven by streetwear collaborations. Brands join forces and thus, produce high-end apparel that combines expertise and iconic aesthetic cues. A recurring collaborator on the scene is The North Face, for example. The label, which is rooted in outdoorsy performance wear, has expanded its consumer base significantly by partnering up with brands like Hyke, Kazuki Kuraishi, and Supreme. This move ultimately infuses the functional sporty apparel with an incredibly chic quality that makes it quite enticing.
Of course, streetwear collaborations do not have to be reduced exclusively to fashion-centric brand-on-brand endeavors. For the more experimentally daring, the partnership between Amsterdam-based fashion label The Daily Paper and iconic rum brand Havana Club might be of interest. Other instances include a streetwear collaboration between Indonesian fashion label Domestik and two artists — Japan-based Tersunori Tawaraya and London-based Louis Goodall.
